Democrats are infuriated.
They thought their socialist agenda was a done deal.
But one top Democrat made a major announcement that sent Ilhan Omar into a profanity-laced tirade.
During his recent appearance on Fox News Sunday, West Virginia Senator Joe Manchin publicly declared that he could not support Joe Biden’s nearly $5 trillion socialist spending bill.
“If I can’t go home and explain to the people of West Virginia, I can’t vote for it,” Manchin stated. “And I cannot vote to continue with this piece of legislation. I just can’t. I’ve tried everything humanly possible. I can’t get there. This is a no on this piece of legislation. I have tried everything I know to do.”
Democrats must have Manchin’s vote in order to pass Biden’s socialist spending scheme.
That’s why Democrats were infuriated by the news that Manchin was a “no” vote.
Democrat Ilhan Omar even called Manchin’s reasoning “bullshit” in a post on social media.
Let’s be clear: Manchin’s excuse is bullshit. The people of West Virginia would directly benefit from childcare, pre-Medicare expansion, and long term care, just like Minnesotans.
This is exactly what we warned would happen if we separated Build Back Better from infrastructure. https://t.co/dhzcSk0qUV

Of course, Manchin’s announcement shouldn’t be surprising to Democrats.
After all, Manchin spent the past few months expressing his opposition to the Green New Deal provisions, the welfare programs, and expansions of socialized medicine hidden within the massive spending bill.
But Democrat Party leaders didn’t take Manchin seriously, which is why they pushed forward with a $5 trillion socialist scheme believing he would come around by the time the bill came to the floor for a vote.
And Ilhan Omar’s profanity-laced rant shows how outraged the Left is after seeing their best chance to turn America into a socialist nation go down in flames.
